Nah, everyone being like “Oh, it’s not their fault. Corporate greed is what’s killing Halo” are delusional. Corporate greed exists in every major game especially free to plays. Halo is by far and away worse than all of them. I understand that we’re going to be stuck with a grind and a bunch of paywalls that’s pretty standard these days. However, 343 aren’t even attempting to make putting up with all that worth it. Their customization sucks, their challenges are broken, their weapons are either broken or just flat out useless. They promised nothing less than Halo Reach on cosmetics yet there aren’t any female Spartans and no Elites. That’s half of Reaches customization right there. Plus, you can’t even pick your own color scheme anymore (that one really is corporate greed). Half of the challenges are next to impossible and not just because they’re hard. There’s no game filter so you have to random queue and hope you get the right game, hope you find the right weapon/vehicle, and then hope you get X amount of the certain type of kills you need and that’s the only way to progress. Most of the new weapons (except Cindershot) are completely terrible I mean random weapons in Halo used to be fun but not now that this what we get to use. And for the record everyone saying “343’s listening” No, these forums have been making all of these complaints for months due to the flights and 343 haven’t even acknowledged that this site exists. They don’t care, they’re not listening, and they’re LAZY. I know, I know, that last bit is going to make some of you mad with “but they’re really tired. It’s been such a hard few months for them” yada yada so on… this game doesn’t even have Slayer just Team Slayer in disguise, and like I said early no female Spartans. I’m sorry but when a AAA developer with the longest development time ever for a Halo and the largest budget in gaming history (500 million in case you’re wondering" leaves out core features that have been in all/most Halo games because it’s easier, all I see is pure laziness.
